Arthur Cotton Moore is an architect in Washington, D.C.. Born in 1935, he grew up in the Kalorama district of Washington,[1] and after attending St. Albans School studied architecture at Princeton University.[1] He received an Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects in 1977 and became a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 1979. He is known for a style called "industrial baroque" and is probably best known for the Washington Harbour development on the Potomac River in Georgetown, the newer building of The Phillips Collection also in the U.S capital city, and the renovation of the Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress.[2] He also led the successful restoration of Washington DC's tallest residential building, the Cairo Hotel in 1974.[1]
